Our weekend was FABULOUS!! So busy but FUN busy!!! :)

I have some shares for ya! :) I have a few goodies I didnt post yet from my month of creativeness at Scrappin Mojo

So lets start with this.. You can find LOTS of ideas for post it note covers and pens at Youtube I used the larger post it notes for this one.. and the pen idea was a pen and pencil idea put together.. the pencils were by Jennifer McGuire found HERE

This is a gift for one of Amandas teachers.. need to get busy and finish the other one for her other teacher! :)

today I shared some Christmas punch art ~ I found at Split Coast Stampers

THIS owl I thought was so CUTE!! Here is mine.. unsure what I will use him for.. maybe a cute tag.. :)

Then I saw THESE and had to make them up too! :)

That is all I have for today!! THANKS for stopping by!! I owe BLOG VISITS and will be by today blog friends!!! Hoping to get a layout or 2 done too.. wish me luck!!!
Happy Holidays!!! (I can say that right... it is after Thanksgiving! LOL!)

HAPPY NOV. 25th!!!

You know what that means... PTI BLOG HOP night!! YIPPPEEE!! :)

I made up 2 quick and easy shares with ya for tonite! BOTH inspidered by PTIs own Michelle!
HERE she decorated some candy all cute and festive!

Here is my take on it.. These candies are so GOOD.. if you like Jr. Mints and candy cane... you must find some.. just dont look at the B B and Beyond by me I bought all but 4 boxes! HA!! they are that good! :)
I wanted a way to add a gift card so here it is for the moment.. I had another vision.. will work on that! :)
Before! (YUM!)

After all ready to give! This took about 15 minutes!

AGAIN Michelle inspired me HERE.. love those cute altered clothes pins!
Here is my take! I stamped the bag.. added stickles! Cut the squares and snowflake with my cricut.. stamped the tag and it is ready to fill with homemade treats! :) Again about 15 minutes to make!! (ok the stickles take a bit longer to dry.. but I had to have some on here.. a little sparkle for the HOLIDAYS!

THANKS for stopping by!! Happy BLOG HOP!!! and I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!

Funny Story Monday! :)

I just had to share.. thought it was pretty funny!! I was doing some early xmas shopping with my Steve yesterday.. at Target I put all our stuff up to be paid for.. after it was all rang up the gal said oh did you want the card too... I said what card.. she said the card in the seat.. I said OH no that is my notebook I made! She said oh I thought it was one of our xmas cards! HA HA! it was very pretty... she told me!! THEN at Hallmark I was paying for somethings and she reached out to take it to scan.. and said OH that isnt ours! HA HA!!!
I was feeling pretty proud I must say!!! :) So if that just doesnt make all my PTI purchases worth it I dont know what will! HA HA!!!

Here is the notebook.. I KNOW you all wanted to see it again.. LOL! and hmmm I gotta find that matching pen... I think someone BORROWED it from me! :)

Successful Birthday Party!!

YEAH the BIG 13th birthday was a SUCCESS!!!! Justin had such a GREAT time.. I think his friends did too! We had the boys over for pizza lunch, then took them to Traxx for some racing... back here for gifts and cake!! After the boys left we had a big ole spag. dinner for the family and our friends.. now this girl needs to go to BED.. LOL!!

I got TONS of photos but I need to get my actions into PSE so I can turn on the lights! LOL! and you can see them! I did get a few.. here is one of my Justin... aftr the big race! ;)

Here are a couple cards I made this week!! I am LOVING all the vintage images out there.. this angel is another one from the sheet I got at the CK convention!!

The lace on the cards is the same.. I just used my PTI chamomile ink duo on the angel card to give it a creamy vintage look! I will be doing this AGAIN!

This card I cut again with my top note die,... and that snowflake is 2 different sizes cut from my cricut.. they are COVERED in rock candy stickles!!

That is all I got... gonna peek at some blogs.. then it is BEDTIME!!
tomorrow I am off to xmas shop.. and a dinner DATE with Steve!! So looking forward to that!

So I have a couple shares for you.. I am behind on sharing things on the blog!! So I am gonna share 2 today to catch up!!! Last week at Mojo! My creative shares were about going green!! (see below post for one goodie!) so here are a couple more GREEN goodies I created!!

First up was inspired by Michelle
I LOVED this idea! I even had the correct size envies.. but THEN I got a BRAIN storm... I thought why not use the JUNK mail envies that come to me! So I cut one in half and came up with THIS idea! I will be making more! :)


After- there is strip of SNOW glitter on the bottom.. doesnt show in photo.. didnt know I had it.. and LOVE it.. will be using it more! HA!

This was another idea.. I have shared it before from THIS Youtube video! TP rolls were never so FUN! LOL!!!

I made THIS one earlier in the year... then I created this one for our Santa visit this year! (need to find my crop a dile..then I can really tie the ribbons on it! LOL!)

Thanks for stopping by.. I am busy busy today.. really the rest of the week.. got a PARTAY to get ready for!! 13... sigh.. not ready.. not ready! LOL!!
Have a GREAT day!!!

Happy Monday!!

Good Morning! I was gonna call this post Happy Holidays.. but I figured it maybe a bit to early... not really if you count Thanksgiving is what 10 days away!! OH MY!! this year is FLYING by!!!!

THANK YOU for all your sweet comments on the box below!! :) Your all so SWEET!

Well last week at MOJO my little shares were going green!!! So I recycled alot of things...

This is one of my favorite goodies to make...

It started as THIS-

Ended up THIS- A 12 day (more or less depending on how good I am!) Xmas Journal.. Melissa shared hers HERE I think this I can do.. I had a hard time on the Dec. daily last year! (still working on getting it done.. I got a month RIGHT!! ANYWAY... here is mine!

A peek inside... there is a pocket on the last page... all my pages are in.. not embellied YET! I want to be able to take them out and create them as I go... so when it is done it will be all dolled up with ribbons too.. but I needed easy access.. and ribbons dont let ya do that! HA! :)

I was so happy I used some STASH!! :) Gotta love when you do that.. I sprayed glimmer mist all over the cover (hard to see) but it started my love affair with glimmer mist AGAIN! HA!!! :)
Thanks for stopping by.... I am off to the treadmill.. then going to my crafty room.. gotta get my MOJO goodie finished to share!
Have a GREAT day!
